They claimed it wasn’t “Engineered” — Yes it was!

“They purposely mutated the virus,” says reader Marcus. “It is unknown if the virus escaped the lab, or they experimented with the local population, However, China locked down their cities and travel, yet knowingly allowed people to fly all over the world spreading the virus!”

“We will use S protein sequence data, infectious clone technology, in vitro and in vivo infection experiments and analysis of receptor binding to test the hypothesis that % divergence thresholds in S protein sequences predict spillover potential.”

Here are excerpts from a Newsweek article showing that the virus was indeed purposely mutated:

“… just last year, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the organization led by Dr. (Anthony) Fauci, funded scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and other institutions for work on gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses.|

In 2019, with the backing of NIAID, the National Institutes of Health committed $3.7 million over six years for research that included some gain-of-function work. The program followed another $3.7 million, 5-year project for collecting and studying bat coronaviruses, which ended in 2019, bringing the total to $7.4 million.

Many scientists have criticized gain of function research, which involves manipulating viruses in the lab to explore their potential for infecting humans, because it creates a risk of starting a pandemic from accidental release.

SARS-CoV-2 , the virus now causing a global pandemic, is believed to have originated in bats. U.S. intelligence, after originally asserting that the coronavirus had occurred naturally, conceded last month that the pandemic may have originated in a leak from the Wuhan lab. (At this point most scientists say it’s possible—but not likely—that the pandemic virus was engineered or manipulated.)

The NIH research consisted of two parts. The first part began in 2014 and involved surveillance of bat coronaviruses, and had a budget of $3.7 million. The program funded Shi Zheng-Li, a virologist at the Wuhan lab, and other researchers to investigate and catalogue bat coronaviruses in the wild. This part of the project was completed in 2019.

A second phase of the project, beginning that year, included additional surveillance work but also gain-of-function research for the purpose of understanding how bat coronaviruses could mutate to attack humans. The project was run by EcoHealth Alliance, a non-profit research group, under the direction of President Peter Daszak, an expert on disease ecology. NIH canceled the project just this past Friday, April 24th, Politico reported. Daszak did not immediately respond to Newsweek requests for comment.

The project proposal states: “We will use S protein sequence data, infectious clone technology, in vitro and in vivo infection experiments and analysis of receptor binding to test the hypothesis that % divergence thresholds in S protein sequences predict spillover potential.”

In layman’s terms, “spillover potential” refers to the ability of a virus to jump from animals to humans, which requires that the virus be able to attach to receptors in the cells of humans. SARS-CoV-2, for instance, is adept at binding to the ACE2 receptor in human lungs and other organs.

According to Richard Ebright, an infectious disease expert at Rutgers University, the project description refers to experiments that would enhance the ability of bat coronavirus to infect human cells and laboratory animals using techniques of genetic engineering. In the wake of the pandemic, that is a noteworthy detail.

Ebright, along with many other scientists, has been a vocal opponent of gain-of-function research because of the risk it presents of creating a pandemic through accidental release from a lab.

  1. Finally: Beast from the East set to release extreme cold and snow over Europe next week

    Looks like Europe will finally be experiencing more winter weather as we head into early February.
    What weather models are hinting at lately is a severe cold outbreak setting up this weekend into next week. A so-called ‘Beast from the East’ will push extreme cold and also develop some snow towards the west and south.

    We can see a large and very intense pool of frigid cold air mass over Russia, with almost 20°C below normal environment. Part of this air mass will be gradually spreading west towards the UK, then turning south into France as well.

    ‘Global Warming is Coming!
    Covid is just a demographic control.
    The human being can’t even control a tiny virus, but he control the weather, isn’t!?’

  2. I think it’s just an ordinary flu bug. And you can’t really blame China for having allowed it to spread because when the UK government was in such a panic about it, closing everyone down, they were allowing flights from China and Italy to land at Heathrow every day. No lockdowns there. So what’s that all about?

  3. If Fauci’s goal in sponsoring Wuhan’s study of bat-infections was to project a bio-engineered virus’ “spillover potential” for purposes of designing defenses in advance, the self-dealing ethical and moral hazard was extreme.

    Researchers seeking to pose a mortal danger on the public, then extorting payment for keeping it at bay, combine “Arbeit Macht Frei” with “All power to the Soviets” as professional guidelines.

    To creatures of this ilk, Wuhan was a successful test-run in preparation for the next Green Gang assault. Laugh if you will, but Luddite thanatists worldwide explicitly endorse the State-directed murder of 7.25 billion human souls (95% of extant populations) in cause of Saving the Planet from everybody but themselves.

  4. anyone else think its VERY ODD that they cant “source” the blend of bugglies to work out what species it theoretically had to have crossed from?
    while they CAN do a full dna profile and even “see” the mutations occurring now
    if youre seeing the originating dna samples and progressions then NOT seeing the “other” animal dna in the mix…beggars credulity
    remember the high confidence snake/pangolin Dna they claimed at first?
    no most people dont seem to remember that

  5. even funnier is they can get a FRAGMENT of supposed covid from millions of gallons of waste in a septic collection and be superconfident its actually covid19
    suuuure they can,well our aussie wastewater checkers reckon they can
    they just got 3 more small Vic rural towns in a tizzy by saying that!

    • I share your skepticism, Laurel. My gut feeling is that the pandemic was fabricated. The Wuhan-drama was staged to frighten gullible governments and populations. Wuhan was selected as stage due to the convenient presence of a virus research lab. Info like the above is deliberately leaked to enhance belief in the existence of the (still un-isolated) virus.

  6. Thanks, Robert, for I didn’t expect this to end up as headlines.
    I heard about this type of research about a year ago on the radio, but didn’t pursue it. But a few days ago on the radio, I heard that Fauci and other virologists had been conducting experiments in the USA until Obama banned the practice. The claim is that Fauci and “Gang” handed their research to the Wuhan lab to continue the research. Of course, the article didn’t elaborate on that situation.

    Fauci claims that we need to determine how an animal virus could mutate into a human virus. To me, it’s like saying we created the Atom Bomb, so we can prevent it!

    Ever since WWI, governments have been researching chemical warfare, but now, Fauci has weaponized a virus!
    This won’t be the last virus the world will ever see! Thanks a lot, Fauci!

    • PS: If you haven’t seen the movie “Contagion”, then you should watch it, for there are many similarities. Pay attention to the end of the movie.

      • The so – called “health secretary” Hancock admits to using that film as a model for the “governments” response to the so-called pandemic here in UK !!!

  7. The winter death figures for the elderly do not differ widely from statistical norms, which is what you would expect during pandemics. Neither does the average age of death. it is equal to life expectancy if you are interested. I see no published figures showing the undertaker and grave digger being busier than usual either.
    To top it all I keep a keen eye on Worldometers and not always for the latest Covid announcements. I like to study the World Population in its entirety and last year it increased by over 80 million. Surely one expects a REDUCTION of population during pandemics (and Bill Gates practicing what we hear so much about).
    Please examine the science not the media sensationalism.
    Thank you.

  8. If a doctor does not tell you that the Covid vaccine is experimental and asks for your consent this is a war crime. The Nuremberg code on medical experimentation written in 1947 illustrates explicit voluntary consent from patients is required- patients must be told they are taking part in a trial. They must be told of all the adverse events. That is what informed consent means. Legally all those giving injections without informing the patients are war criminals.
